The pressure on a balloon holding 105 mL of an ideal gas is increased from 212 torr to 1.00 atm. What is the new volume of the balloon (in mL) at constant temperature?

Remember to use 3 Sig. Fig.

A sample of hydrogen gas (H_{2}) is in a 2.11 L container at 694 torr and 25 ^{o}C. Express the pressure of hydrogen in atm after the volume has changed to 1.09 L and the temperature is raised to 166 ^{o}C.

Remember to use K

PV=nRT

(694/760)(2.11)=n(0.08206)(25+273.15)

n= 0.08009528

P(1.09)=(0.08009528)(0.08206)(166+273.15)

A sample of methane gas (CH_{4}) at 17.4 ^{o}C is either heated or cooled. The pressure increases from 1.54 atm to 3.95 atm, and the volume of the sample changes from 3.73 L to 1.99 L. To what temperature, in ^{o}C, was the methane heated or cooled?

Last reminder--use K in calculation, then convert to C.

PV/T= PV/T

(1.54)(3.73)/(17.4+273.15)=(3.95)(1.99)/T

T (K)=397.59

A 40.0 L cylinder containing helium gas at a pressure of 25.7 atm is used to fill a weather balloon in order to lift equipment into the stratosphere. What is the final pressure (in atm) in the cylinder after a 391 L balloon is filled to a pressure of 1.47 atm.

Method 1, new hint, find the pressure of the gas in the balloon, if it were all in the small cylinder. Next use Dalton's law of partial pressure to get the final pressure in the small cylinder.

Method 2, Old hint(works but harder), the moles in the cylinder at the beginning = moles in cylinder + balloon at end.

The following procedure provides a crude method of determining the molar mass of a volatile liquid. A liquid of mass 0.0157 g is introduced into a syringe and the end is capped (sealed). The syringe is transferred to a temperature bath maintained at 63.1 ^{o}C, and the liquid vaporizes. As the liquid vaporizes the plunger is pushed out. At equilibrium, the plunger reads 4.00 mL of gas. Atmospheric pressure is 740. mmHg. What is the approximate molar mass of the compound (in g/mol)?

The reaction of magnesium metal with HCl yields hydrogen gas and magnesium chloride. What is the volume, in liters, of the gas formed at 755 torr and 17 ^{o}C from 2.69 g of Mg in excess HCl? (Hint, first write the balanced equation.)

What mass of water (in grams) forms from the reaction of 2.93 L of hydrogen gas and 1.96 L of oxygen gas? Both gases are at 701 torr and 27.7 ^{o}C.

Remember hydrogen and oxygen are a diatomic molecules. Don't forget to balance the equation.

A 2.10 L sample of neon at 11.54 atm is added to a 12.0 L cylinder that contains argon. If the pressure in the cylinder is 5.47 atm after the neon is added, what was the original pressure (in atm) of argon in the cylinder?

An effusion container is filled with 4 L of an unknown gas. It takes 124 s for the gas to effuse into a vacuum. From the same container under the same conditions--same temperature and initial pressure, it takes 42 s for 4.00 L of O_{2} gas to effuse. Calculate the molar mass (in grams/mol) of the unknown gas.

Rate of effusion 1/Rate of effusion 2 = (MM2/MM1)^0.5
